Ok, that works! :D

Well, the original request used terms like "album" and "release" to encompass both album and song. When I saw the term song in the
code, I thought that's just how you did it, but it would allow the album node to fall in line. It appears to in the original one.
But on the next request, "between x andy y", I guess I mistakenly assumed that only the albums associated with the songs in that "specific year range"
would show up under the album node, not the one's before that range. Next time, I'll specifically mention if I want a certain node to show a certain way.

Thanks again!

The name of the node is "Artists with ...", but not "Songs released between x and y by artists with ..." or "Albums released between x and y by artists with ...". Which means that you got what you requested: artists that meet the criteria. If you want to further filter the display of tracks, you should append the additional criteria, like: And (strftime('%Y%m%d', 'now') - Year) / 10000 Between <ID:1> And <ID:2>.

One thing I noticed is that if I have something like "5y min. to 5y max." or "5y min. to 10y max.",
when I add the album node (with year suffix), it doesn't just include albums within that range, it includes
all albums.

What am I doing wrong?
Do you need my mask?

PERFECTO! :D

Now the user can take customization from there. I like that it shows the most recent date next to the artist.
So very handy.

Thanks

Thanks!
Works great. :)

Is there a way to limit it even further?
Such as, a minimum of 5 years but not more than 5 years, 10 years, etc.?

Here's a thought,

Is there a way for the add-on to show how long it's been since an artist
has released another album, or relative, that it's been at least so many years since the last release that you have in your library?

You could insert a number of years in the code (modifiable) and periodically insert the current year somewhere in the code as well.

For example,
I want to know how long since the last release (in general and/or in my library) for any given Album Artist, therefore you could put
in something like "4" years minimum and current date "2017" and the results would show any Album Artist that fits that criteria.

Good to know. Thanks!

I will do that! Thanks for your support!

The install of the enhanced version is like with any other previous versions, i.e. it replaces the last installed version during its installation. However, since the new version has many masks added/renamed/improved, it is recommended that you uninstall the old version before installing the new one and when you asked if you want to remove all settings you should choose Yes. Of course, before doing that you should first make a backup of your own created masks to be able to import them back after installation of the new version.

Ok. Thanks for the information about that... :)

If I buy the enhanced version do I have to remove the free version? Or am I able to install this version to my installed version?

Sorry, but no, I didn't. That addition in the changelog is something unrelated to your sorting wish.

Unfortunately, I tried some ideas that I had about it, but none of them was successful. It is very unlikely that your wish could be realized without MM developers applying it into their database using a new SQL collation.

I found out that there was an update for the enhanced version of this addon (v5.1 - 2017-03-07). Did you put my sorting wish in this version already?
In the changelog you wrote "Added: several new ways of sorting masks in the Manage Masks dialog box from the table's context menu".
